    This is a ballsy bit of painting, here. 30x30 is a really good size for big statements about industry, but look what Tankersley is doing here - how she is playing with geometry.... The volumetric railroad tank car (a cylinder) sits darkly and squatly bam center as the resolutely rectangular buildings (except for the one cylindrical one that subtly echoes the rail car) mass behind it. But the key to the painting is the gorgeously arcing tracery of the railroad tracks tying the two together and pulling the eye inexorably to the mysterious blue area and the horizontal rectangle. Then you start noticing the massive triangular slab that the structures and that conveyor make. Then you grab your stuff and go out to paint some yourself, because paintings this good make us glad to be alive and make us want to get in on the action.
